Sixth Form Parent Bulletin – May 2016

 

The Kimberley School Sixth Form is a great place to learn.

Students develop independence in a nurturing environment. We pride ourselves on the individual attention and close relationships students have with tutors and teachers. Our class sizes are deliberately kept small to allow for each student to receive the individual attention they need.

Our Common Room offers a study space with access to computers during lesson times. Whilst during lunch and break times the Common Room has its own canteen where you can sit and relax with friends.

Students have the opportunity to join a variety of Student Committees to develop their organisational and  leadership skills.

Our Wednesday afternoon Enrichment programme offers students a range of activities including the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.

Sixth Form application forms and prospectuses can be located in the Student Centre at The Kimberley School. For any other information about the Sixth Form, please feel free to contact the school and ask for the Sixth Form Performance Leader Mrs Livings, Assistant Sixth Form Performance Leader Ms Yemm or the Sixth Form Co-ordinator Mrs Booth.

If you are looking to take a gap year and travel abroad, there is new information in the ‘Abroad’ box file, near to the printer in the Common Room.

As always, if you choose to take on an experience like this, research it thoroughly first.
